I did not find any of the questions difficult, however there was a lot of focus on the fact that I had children. The recruiter even said that this was a worry for them as it could mean I'm not able to fully commit (this almost made me turn down the job offer).

2 Answers

I'm sorry to hear that the interview process with the recruiter in 2016 focused on the fact you had children. We have a number of our colleagues who have children and we actively encourage and promote a work/life balance. I trust you have had a positive experience since you have been with us and that any initial concerns you may have had have not borne fruit. Less

Lynn - thanks for your response. I have had no concerns since joining and Wealth Wizards are very accommodating when it comes to work life balance. I'm not sure why it was ever brought up in the interview process! Less
